I am a Ph.D student at Glasgow Caledonian University and I’m recruiting participants for study I am currently undergoing using experience sampling in the field of soundscape study. Please read the info below and if you are interested in taking part, please let me know.
Experience Sampling: Assessing Soundscapes Using In Situ Participatory Methods.
The main aim of this study is to investigate the level of activity (listening state) as it occurs naturally in everyday life with a focus on the different characteristics of the sound and how they relate to the listener, the soundscape, and the situation. The main outcomes of the study will access:
• The impact of the soundscape on the listener i.e. irritation, distraction etc.
• The situation i.e. location, alone or with another person, activity etc. and;
• The characteristics of the soundscape itself i.e. what sounds are being heard and the prominence of those sounds at that time
For this novel study, you will be required to report on any environmental soundscapes which have impacted you in some way, whether that be positive or negative, as you go about your daily routine. Using the bespoke mobile phone application (for iOS and Android only), you will record the soundscape and submit your responses from within the app. The study will last 14 days and you are encouraged to provide as many soundscapes as you wish during this period (although there is no upper or lower limit).
The next 14-day study period will be starting from this Monday (27th April).
If you would like to participate, then please email me (Adam [dot] Craig [at] gcu [dot] ac [dot] uk ) and I will provide details to the landing page of the project where you can read more on the study and find information on the mobile application and what will be required of you.
Please feel free to pass this on to other interested parties and mailing lists at your discretion.
Thank you for your time.
